PLANET X To Hit The Road, Keyboardist To Issue Solo Album

PLANET X, featuring keyboardist Derek Sherinian (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, DREAM THEATER), guitarist Tony MacAlpine, and drummer Virgil Donati, are preparing to hit the road next week. According to Sherinian, "bassist Ric Fierabracci is sounding great with the band — this should be fun. The live set will feature most of the music from our new CD 'MoonBabies', along with all the old hits! ... and yes there will be plenty of pompous, self indulgent solo spots from each member!"

In related news, Derek will be playing some holiday shows with BILLY IDOL.

The dates are as follows:

Dec. 28 - Mandalay Bay - Las Vegas, CA
Dec. 30 - 4th and B - San Diego, CA
Dec. 31 - House of Blues - Hollywood, CA

Also on the Sherinian front, the keyboardist is about "98%" done with his new solo album, which will be mixed by Simon Phillips in January 2003.

Among the songtitles set to appear on the CD are the following:

01. The Sons of Anu (feat. Yngwie Malmsteen, Al Dimeola)
02. Stony Days (feat. Steve Lukather)
03. Fear of Flying (feat. Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen)
04. Gypsy Moth (acoustic duet w/Al DiMeola)
